I’ve been checking out the site of Sam Spratt, he’s an amazing artist that has gained his fame on the art/image sharing site Tumblr.com. I just watched a really interesting video on his site produced by PBS.org that talks about the world of Fan Art. It was fantastic. The funny thing is that some of the sites the artists reference I show in some of my classes to inspire or for examples. What I love about the PBS piece is that it’s all about creating for creating sake, and just getting your work out there. It’s something that students are doing and may be an interesting assignment in there somewhere.
So here’s the PBS.org short about fan art.
Here’s a time lapse video of Sam creating an illustration in PhotoShop. Amazing.
